This poses an interesting moral question, what percent of a certain group need to be violent in order for discrimination to be justified? For example, if the Aryan Brotherhood, MS13 or the Bloods wanted to go to a gun range and practice would it be okay if the owners turned them down?

To those of us who haven't been indoctrinated by the far-left it also means "somebody's about to lose their head".
It's actually pronounced "Aloha Snackbar!" it means "I am hungry!"

People make the mistake of thinking that, unless you are PC, no one will patronize your business. They discount the fact that public backlash at being forced to be "PC", will actually bring more business to your door.

Watch while it happens before your eyes. The market speaks!
Anyone remember Chick-Fil-A?

I don't even know what started it (maybe 4 or 5 years ago), but what I do know is that they have no shortage of customers at any hour of the day.

Their parking lot is always full with most of the tables occupied by sitting customers in addition and their drive-thrus are like congo-lines wrapped 270į around the building most of the time.

And if you don't believe that, remember that this wonderful Christian lady owns a FIRING RANGE
What is the problem with that?

For the reasons she listed.
You are correct that it is her right to run her business as she pleases in accordance with the law. Even though most of her reasons for banning "dangerous" Muslims are ignorant, poorly researched and hypocritical. One of the biggest problems I see with her genius plan is how does she determine who is Muslim? From her moronic article I assume she will ban all dark brown skinned men who look like this:

http://www.jdwalkerministries.com/im.../18/000511.jpg

Funny thing is most men that look like that are Hindu and not Muslim. Muslims can literally look White, Spanish, Black, Asian, Indian etc. So honestly unless someone voluntarily tells her they are Muslim, she won't know one from another. Chances are she will end up kicking out a non-Muslim based on her ignorance. That individual will be part of a protected class and she will end up with a discrimination lawsuit on her hands.

But theses alleged murders aren't motivated by their religion like the islamo-nutjobs.

Who cares; just go to another range; she can do as she likes. I let the law settle crimes and support them doing it as I always have; backed by a grand jury and trial jury of citizens to judge in end.

That's a sweeping non-factual indictment of one religion. They have extremists, just like in the Christian faith...

The lack of education in this country is more frightening than any violent extremists in my opinion, as it's proven over and over again that ignorance and hatred is at root of all conflict.
